Young archaeologist digs up Roman pottery
10:20am Tuesday 15th May 2012 in Oxford
INDIANA Jones fan Sam Graham was thrilled to find some archaeological remains on his first ever dig.
Archeox, the East Oxford Archaeology and History Project, has been running a series of digs in the Blackbird Leys and Greater Leys area.
The group has been looking for evidence of Romano-British pottery industries, Civil War defences and other evidence of the area’s past.
On Saturday, Archeox members staged a dig at a house in Grebe Close, Greater Leys.
Sam, a pupil at New College School in Oxford, said: “It was good fun and it has encouraged me to think about becoming an archaeologist.”
